Victor von der Heyde is an Australian dharma teacher. His main influence in the dharma world was Rob Burbea. Victor was co-founder of Sydney Insight Meditators and the Bodhgaya Development Association.
He writes: These days my passions in teaching - and practice - include exploring the various responses to climate breakdown, the way we treat others on the planet, and the ways that we often get stuck with particular concepts of self and world. And stuck with particular meditation practices. My intention is to open up freeing and soulful possibilities for people.
This meditation uses any personal images people might have from considering what might constitute a beautiful life for them, and considering Naikan questions (in this case what one has received from the world, what one has given, what problems or difficulties one thinks one has caused), and tuning in to the impact these images have on the energy body. The later part of the meditation focusses on putting images aside. It’s partly a practice to develop appreciation, to see the felt impact of one’s actions, and partly - towards the end - an exercise in letting go of images.
A brief overview of the cultivation of unselfish joy and an introduction to Naikan practice. There was about 25 minutes of Q and A taken out from the Naikan section, but what's left still gives a fair overview.
